Doctor, doctor gimme the news
We just got back from one of my 'routine' doctor's appointments with my internist. It was time to get Rx's renewed and get the results of labwork done in August. I was doing mental cartwheels by the time we got to the exam room -- I've lost 15 lbs. since my last visit (and 22 lbs. since the visit before that)!

The nurse wrote my weight down 10 lbs. higher than it was today, too. I noticed it and corrected her -- and she said, "No, that's right." So I had her walk back to the scale. NEVER question a woman over 10 lbs. Especially when it means she's only lost 5 vs. 15 of them. She smiled when she noticed her goof, and my chart was immediately corrected. Heh. We don't have a scale, and I refuse to buy one -- so this is the first time I've had official confirmation, other than my clothes just fitting loose.

My choleseterol was 221 when normal for my age is 200. Nothing really major there. And my 'good' choleseterol was 38 when normal for my age is 40. So not too bad...or bad enough to watch yet... (I can't believe I'm getting old enough they have to pay attention to this stuff.) Other than that, I'm doing well as far as the rest of the labwork goes and I won't have to go back again until late January!

Of course, all the good news comes on a day when I feel less than...but I'll gladly take this wiped feelin' after a big OU win any day. Todd and Robbie have said they are both hurting, and they're perfectly healthy. So that's that!

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

dude you are like elaine from sienfeld...surprised they let you see the chart. of course they are probably following you now. watch your back.

I have chronic low BP so they let me see it after they do the initial check-in stuff so I can monitor my meds accordingly. I check it here at home, too -- but when I'm out and about, it drops lower. So I don't think they're after me...yet. *g*

It's nice to know you are doing good. I wish I were having that luck with the weight dept, but I'll keep trying. Congrats.

Whoo hoo! Sounds like it was a good day at the doctors then! I sure hope so - you deserve it! And congratulations on the 22 pounds! You're my hero - have I told you that lately?

I am SO glad to hear about your *good* doctors appointments. It makes me not nearly so scared to go to mine! The longer I put off my follow up, the more petrified I've become. And its really not following up on that much. I'm just a big wuss!!!
My mom has really low blood pressure, too - when Megan was using us for guinea pigs this weekend, mom's was like a huge amount lower than any of us!
That is so great that your lost all that weight - you rock so freakin' much!!!!!
